ABSTRACT
The article reports that the projects index in the Middle East region stabilized at 2.52 trillion dollars in the first week of May 2011. The index started declining from 2.63 trillion dollars on January 12, 2011 as a result of anti-government protests in the region. The projects market in the Gulf Cooperation Council remained flat and the lack of movement in the Bahrain market contributed to its stabilization.
